The use of stock footage is normally branded as amateur and unprofessional, but these assumptions are misleading. Stock videos are advantageous for a number of reasons: they’re cost effective, efficient, and high quality. In fact, Hollywood filmmakers use stock footage quite frequently. Here are three reasons why you should incorporate stock footage in your online video advertising campaign:
It’s relatively inexpensive
When using stock videos, you eliminate a large portion of the overhead costs. No need for expensive cameras, film crews or extravagant, far-away locations. With production costs significantly lowered, there’s no reason not to use stock footage – if you don’t utilize it, then you waste valuable time and money.
You become the filmmaker
Why pay someone else to make your video? Stock footage empowers the creator to envision his or her own design. Oftentimes people pay video production companies for an outcome that they may or may not like.
